Monthly Hack Day

  • Startup Edmonton #301, 10359 - 104 Street Edmonton, Alberta Canada

Join us for monthly Hack Days - time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it’s a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch. 

NEW: Taking a page out of the playbooks of some of our best community meetups, we will now have mentors on-hand to offer code reviews, pair-programming sessions, and answer questions. 

February 6, 2015 | RSVP by February 4  

Mentors: Stay tuned here for an announcement on which mentors will be available!
